HELLO and welcome to the latest feature to hit the Madonna forum. Over the next few weeks, we will be collectively finding out our favourite Madonna ballad!

At this stage all you have to do is search back through her back catalogue and nominate between 3 and 10 ballads.

Now obviously we might all have different definitions for a ballad but if we stick to the definition of: "a slow sentimental or romantic song." we should be ok! Regardless of what inidividuals might think though, if the song gets enough nominations it will be put through, but please don't take the piss tongue.gif If there are any songs that WILDY go against the idea of a ballad, we might have to omit them, but I'm sure it won't come to that and we can always discuss ones we are not sure about in this thread heehee.gif If in doubt think EMOTION~

So grab your tissues, get listening and NOMINATE sob.gif

I HAVE SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM.

Not my official nominations yet but 'Oh Father', 'Rain' and 'Intervention' HAVE to get a look in here <3

Oh gosh, this will be interesting!

I don't really think of her as a ballad artist and yet she actually does them so very well indeed. Oh Father is a must for me but so would I'll Remember, Forbidden Love (if that counts?), Intervention, Crazy For You, Live To Tell and Ghosttown too for that matter.

I'd say so.

My way of defining a Madonna ballad is asking myself whether it would appear on Something to Remember. 'Where Life Begins' would in terms of sound, although probably not lyrically.

Crazy For You >>>> all other Madonna ballads.

The music is so emotive in this one, the vocal is great too.

I just tried to make a list of Madonna ballads so that I don't miss anything out when compiling my Top 10 - I ended up with over 50 songs and at least half of them could quite easily be among my favourites! laugh.gif Like John says, I'm going to have to be brutal!

Presumably the Confessions one? I was a bit stuck on that one; I'd personally be inclined to say it was but I'd get arguments that it wasn't.

Again, I'd say it was but can see both sides.
